Losses don't matter to me this year. So much roster re-tooling, talent building, laying of foundation. I know we are headed in the right direction. Rudy, Isaiah, & DeMarcus are three reliable, legitimate NBA players. Derrick Williams is probably a rotation piece. Carl Landry is still getting back into things but he is a good veteran to have around. Ben has been showing signs of life recently. Other than that, the rest of the roster wont be around by next year you can almost guarantee that. Williams might even be used as a supplemental piece in a trade. I'm confident in our direction. I look for W-L results next year.
Possibly Rodney Hood or James Young. Their game looks suited for the NBA level. I could see those guys going 8-10 area. My fear on Young is he is basically Dion Waiters with size.
Arizona is my team, so I watch Aaron Gordon a lot. I think he's going to have trouble in the NBA because he's a tweener. He's undersized at the 4 and doesn't shoot well enough for the three. I hope I'm wrong because he seems like a real nice kid, but I would pass on him in the lottery. He's like Derrick Williams, but with no outside shot.
Im really shocked at how far the lakers have slipped this year. Deep down inside, I have a fear they will some how end up with a top 5 pick, and he'll end up being the next superstar for them. Probably wiggins slips to them...
Anyway, as for us, I think we will definitely move up the ranks. I just hope we keep our pick. I'm still thinking Vonleh will be our pick.
As for next year. We'll make the playoffs. I'm putting money on it.
